Review: Frankie & Benny’s

Despite an epic fail on Frankie and Benny’s part the last time I visited in Oxford, we decided to give them a second chance. I’d noticed their menu was flaunting a hugely expanded range of vegan options, which all sounded pretty promising to a vegan junk food fiend, so was hoping that this time our experience would turn out to be better.

Review: Bill’s

I’ve been a Bill’s customer since well before I was vegan, and it’s a good place to have a family gathering as they seem to cater well for a big variety of dietary requirements. I probably haven’t been since last Christmas though, so was happy to be invited along by them to try a couple of their newer vegan dishes on the menu, including their festive specials.

Review: Browns Brasserie & Bar

Happily there is at least one vegan option for each course, including nibbles, sides and extras. If you want a coffee or tea, there is soy milk available on request. For a pretty traditional restaurant (we entered to a live pianist) which I wouldn’t have expected to be particularly vegan friendly, it fares surprisingly well, even if there isn’t lots to choose from.

Review: Fressh

I thought I’d review this cute little plant-based fast food restaurant after enjoying a great value, tasty lunch there when meeting a friend. Yes it’s a journey away from Oxford, but Birmingham is one direct train ride away and I’m sure some of the people reading this blog will go or have been on a day trip there at some point.

Review: Wildwood

I wanted to start my review by saying I had a really bad experience at Wildwood. However, this should come with the caveat that I visited the Covent Garden branch, and my experience may not be indicative of what the restaurant chain has to offer as a whole.

Review: The Cape of Good Hope

I noticed a while back that The Cape of Good Hope updated their menu and it included a host of vegan options, including a lasagne. My mind had been fixed on that coveted of dishes for some time, and when my sister (who is also vegan) came to visit, I finally found my reason to go and try it out.

Review: Victors

Thanks to the lovely Tilly at That Oxford Girl, I was recently invited to try out Victors, a Hamptons style restaurant on the rooftop terrace at the Westgate shopping centre, with a couple of friends. I’ve heard mixed things about the restaurant.

Review: Cinnamon Kitchen

I feel like it wasn’t that long ago that I last reviewed Cinnamon Kitchen, but was excited to hear that Vivek Singh’s Cinnamon Collection was launching a new vegan menu and was grateful to be given the opportunity to visit their Westgate branch and check it out.

Review: Spiced Roots

It seems almost unbelievable that I’m only just writing this post, considering I have heard and read so many good things about Spiced Roots in the couple of years it’s existed on Cowley Road (not to mention it currently holds the number 1 spot for restaurants in Oxford on Tripadvisor).
